We Glowed

While in pursuit of wildfowl on Frampton Marsh In the winter of 1954-1955, a friend and I were out in a terrible snow storm, and it came real dark all at once, in fact it was jet black, just like in a dark cupboard. This was on the edge of the River Welland. Then all at once a ghostly figure stood by me, my friend was glowing like a luminous watch, and so was I. We stood laughing at each other, touching each other's clothing at this unusual phenomenon, within thirty seconds it had gone. I have never came across anybody who has seen it, but it is mostly seen on marshes. I think it a privilege to have seen it.

RE: We Glowed

I too was wildfowling on Frampton Marsh with a friend (Ticker Thorne) in the early 60's. It was a 28 foot tide so we couldn't get on the marsh, so we walked along the Cutend Bank in the hope of a rabbit or two and a shadowy figure walked across in front of us from the Haven side to the marsh and disappeared! We searched and called out, but noone, spooky or what?
